    Laura, I just watched your 12-video series, Learn Lightroom CC & 6’s New Features and you did a great job. I appreciate all the hard work you put into it. Thanks for making it available.

      You’re welcome, Ron – you may have been the first to finish it!

    Thank you Laura. As always your videos are terrific. Your original videos show and explain everything so that a once mystifying program became a constant companion and friend, and as new features are added you continue to inform and explain .

    Would that the rest of life came with such clear and comprehensive instructions!

    Thanks for these great videos, Laura! Very informative. I have a question about the pet eye feature. Will it work with white pet eyes (totally overexposed by flash)? Or would I have to resort to the Adjustment Brush to fix those?

    Hi Laura,
    I’ve been working with LR CC Merge to Panorama. It does not seem to like JPEG files at all. And some images that LR will not merge come together just fine if I export them to Photoshop. Is this a bug or is it how the feature works? This is the same on Mac & Windows machines. I get the following error: “Unable to merge the photos. Please cancel and review your selection.” Thanks for your help,
    P.S. Have not been able to find a reference to the issue online.

    Am I glad I took the time to open my email from “Laura Shoe Videos”. For many years starting with LR 3 to LR 5 combined with Photoshop 3-6, I could never understand the “why” the “how-to” explained in such simple language, understanding the concepts as shown, and explained in your videos in Lightroom 6 and CC-2015. I now have the courage to do as shown.
    Tremendous Stuff….keep it up.

      Thanks for the note, Eddie – I’m glad you found the videos helpful!

    I just started using LR 6. I upgraded from LR 5. When I do my HDR photos and finish processing they do not show up with my other photos as they did in LR 5. I now have to go to the Library Filter and do a search to get them to show up. Is there anyway around this so they will show without having to do a search? I use HDR Flex Pro 2 for my HDR images. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Jody,

      Are you in the folder the photos are stored in? If instead you are in a collection, like “Previous Import” in the Catalog panel, you won’t see the HDR images.

      • Jody Merritt July 17, 2015 at 3:16 pm - Reply

        I was in the folder that the photo was stored in. The problem resolved itself after about two days.. I guess it was LR6 glitch. Thank you for the response.

          Perhaps my fall-back would have worked, Jody: if in doubt, close it out! (Close Lightroom and reopen.)

    I upgraded to LR 6/CC because I am a subscriber and my presets are missing, tried to add them and cannot. Please help! how do we add our Mastin or VSCO presets into this new version of LR?

    • Laura Shoe July 17, 2015 at 12:51 pm - Reply

      Go into Preferences, Rhianna, and on the Presets tab, check or uncheck the “store presets with catalog” option, then restart Lightroom. On a Mac, Preferences is under the Lightroom option in the menu bar; on a PC it is under Edit.

    Your videos are great! Thank you.
    However after several tries I have only been able to see the table of contents. I did sign up and I think I followed instructions. I am using the latest version of Firefox.

    • Laura Shoe July 17, 2015 at 12:52 pm - Reply

      Did this get resolved, Kenny? Once you go through the free checkout process and download the zip file, you should have a PDF, a folder of videos, and a folder of practice photos.

    Hi Laura

    I just checked out panorama merge and found it so easy to follow. I have tried experimenting with my Canon 90mm T&S lens in portrait mode by shifting up and then down and then again across the vista I am looking at but am having trouble merging them.I thought it would be easy…

    Do you have any ideas at all please?

    • Laura Shoe July 2, 2015 at 11:45 am - Reply

      Other than being sure that you have enough overlapping content (at least 25%), I don’t know what the issue would be, Mike. I would post on lightroomforums.net for assistance.

    I would like to know how you get the named people from the face tagging into a folder. On your video I don’t think you covered that.

    • Laura Shoe July 17, 2015 at 12:42 pm - Reply

      I’m not sure what you mean by a folder in this case, Monroe. If you mean that you want the people keywords inside a master People keyword, that is covered in the second video on face tagging, which you can access by downloading the series. In a nutshell, click on the + at the top of the Keyword List panel, create a new keyword “People”, and then drag your individual names into it.

    Dear Laura,

    The other day I showed some saved slightshows to friends. During the show I altered some settings like music, pan and zoom speed etc etc. To my regret I noticed that these changes were automatically added to the saved slightsow without any prior warning. Consequently it took me a lot of time to get back to my original settings. Isn’t that odd? Or have I overlooked something perhaps?

    Thank you for your advise in advance.

    Thank you so much Laura.
    I have just bought LR6 and the transition was seamless.
    I’m looking forward to trying the new things.
    Shall I stay on version 6.0

    Thank you very much for your answer and your corresponding link. Before me asking I was convinced there ought to be a tutorial on your website somewhere, but unfortunately I couldn’t find. Now I have it.

    Regards, Cor

    Downloaded an LR6 upgrade from my LR 5.7. All looks great, but it would not do any photo merging. It’s running on a Mac Mini mid 2011 2.5 GHz with OSX 10.11 and AMD Radeon HD 6630M with 256MB. Is the problem caused by the graphics card? I tried clicking and unclicking the Use Graphics Processor but that did not make any difference. The card cannot be upgraded on the Mac mini so, if it is the card’s fault, did I basically just lost my $79 or is there anything I can do about it?

    • Laura Shoe January 26, 2016 at 10:19 am - Reply

      I wouldn’t expect a graphics card issue to affect merging, Gideon. I’d suggest posting on lightroomforums.net for troubleshooting ideas.

      • Gideon January 26, 2016 at 10:53 am - Reply

        Thank you for your response. I’ve made some progress and got it to merge a few photos. I believe the main issue was my ignorance of the basic dos and don’ts of merging pictures, such as focal length, etc.
